HOME LEARNING

Whilst we appreciate the additional demands which home learning places on a family, there is an expectation that children should continue to receive a quality education through this period of time and we as a school are committed to delivering this as we have done previously. Please adhere to all safeguarding processes as detailed previously. Please email yearsix@stokenchurchprimary.bucks.sch.uk should you or your child have any questions/queries.

Hi Year 6,

 

Well done, week 2 completed! Again, we have uploaded the whole week’s work but any last minute changes will be highlighted in red.

They will always be at 11am and eventually will be daily but to start with we are having them on Monday and Friday this week.

Please ensure you have read through the rules before joining your first session. The Live Lessons are open for all pupils from both Pear and Prunus class to attend. Sessions will start as promptly as possible at the time indicated. If you are having any technical difficulties, then please email us and we will try and help.
